Fall is Dropping By.......FMS253







Thought it was time to make a fall card since we officially said good-bye to summer at the lake this past weekend. The Ring of Fire is a wonderful tradition at the Great Sacandaga Lake.  Sunday night before Labor Day everyone builds a bonfire on the beach as a farewell to summer.  So hard to capture in a photograph but the night is just magical. Hundreds of bonfires and fireworks everywhere!

Saying farewell to summer is a bit sad that means fall is right around the corner.  The leaves are turning, apples are almost ready and the air is crisp.  A fabulous time of year!







I love Jen Brum's sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I used the set Acorny Thank You along with A Little Foxy DSP on my card.

What a great tradition! I must say that I'm a little envious that you get to experience actual seasons in your neck of the woods. However, I couldn't handle your winters! :) Your Fall card is a beautiful way to welcome the season. I love the sprigs of greenery behind the acorns.

Fun card with those acorns, Linda! Love the branches behind them too and the DSP you chose look awesome for fall. The hint of blue reminds me of the sky. The acorns are really falling here but there NO hint of fall in the air. Guess I'll wait before pulling out the fall decor!
